1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A point charge Q is placed a distance 2R above the center of an imaginary spherical surface of radius R. Estimate the electric flux through the sphere 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I think the answer is 0 as Gauss law states that the net electric flux through a closed surface that surrounds no charge is zero. In this case the charge is outside the closed surface (sphere). Am I right?
